Solution

The error message suggests potential network issues. To solve the problem, follow these steps:

  • Verify your NI Linux Real-Time controller is connected to the network and has internet access. Run the ping download.ni.com command on your controller to test the connection with the download site. If this step fails, check the network adapter settings of the controller in NI MAX to make sure the controller is able to connect to download.ni.com.
  • Provision the controller with the latest version of the NI Linux RT base image.
  • As workaround, run an offline installation of the software.
